Grilled Black Bean and Sweet Potato Quesadillas (Recipe from Frontier Herbs)



1. Light grill to medium heat.

2. Peel sweet potato and cut into 1/4” thick rounds. Place in a bowl and combine with olive oil, smoked paprika, garlic powder, and salt. Toss until sweet potatoes are coated with spice mixture and transfer to a grill pan (see note).

3. Grill sweet potatoes for 3 to 4 minutes until lightly charring, flip, and continue to cook for another 3 to 4 minutes. Sweet potatoes should be tender. If more grill time is needed, transfer to indirect heat and continue to cook until tender. Remove from heat, let cool slightly, and chop into smaller pieces.

4. While sweet potatoes are grilling, combine black beans, cilantro, and lime juice in a bowl, set aside. Once sweet potatoes are chopped, add to the black beans.

5. To assemble quesadillas, on one side, brush with olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of garlic powder. Flip the tortilla over and add 1 ounce of cheese over the entire surface and then on one half, divide 1/4 of the sweet potato/black bean mixture.

6. Transfer quesadilla over indirect heat on the grill and allow to cook until the cheese has melted. Fold in half and transfer to direct heat. Allow to cook until the tortilla is golden and crisp, 15 to 60 seconds (depending on the heat source). Flip and repeat. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.

If a grill pan is unavailable, cook sweet potatoes on a piece of foil to keep from sweet potatoes from falling through the grill
